Nam Hwa Chong Fish Head Steamboat Corner @ North Bridge Road

Located at a corner shop, this restaurant boasts of two storeys of space. Visited on a Friday evening before 7pm, and easily found a table. Spied that there are also some tables at the back of the shop.

The price is actually not indicated in the menu, so we took our chances. Ordered a pomfret steamboat, a plate of har-cheong gai (prawn paste chicken) and three bowls of white rice. Drinks are paid separately from the food (cash on delivery).

lime juice
ai yu bing (爱玉冰; aiyu jelly), or ai-yo drink (the staff's nickname for this drink)

Didn't have to wait long for the food as it wasn't too crowded on our day of visit.

The soup was not very salty but my friends thought otherwise. It was rather light and clear type (non-milky). Ample fish slices for three pax. Thought that the yam pieces were still too intact as separate entities and hence didn't contribute much flavour to the soup.

chili sauce

The chili sauce would've been nicer if it was spicier. More kick.

prawn paste chicken (har-cheong gai)

The prawn paste chicken (mid-wings only) was just ordinary. Deep fried but lacked the intense prawn paste taste.

The bill for food came up to about $48 (inclusive of 7% GST) for 3 pax. The pomfret steamboat was $35+, while the prawn paste chicken were $8+ for 6-mid-wings.
